There was a print ad for web design in the Metro today

It was from Hibu, the multinational directories and internet services company.

I thought it was unusual to see an ad like that in the paper, and then thought about the differences in service between them and us:

• a closer relationship with the designer is possible with a small agency: a short communication chain, and a responsive and collaborative relationship.

• no limit on design revisions once the brief is agreed. We aim to give clients their perfect design.

• wider design support: the skills and experience to transfer the look and feel of the website to print materials, or even develop the visual identity itself.

Here are a few of the websites we’ve designed in collaboration with our clients:

We also designed the visual identity for Mike Smith, Daniel Spring and Fluidity.

Welcome to Happy Redoubt

IMG_7033_small

We were very thrilled to design exhibition graphics for Welcome to Happy Redoubt; an exhibition by Juneau Projects which is on right now at King’s Cultural Institute at Somerset House.

Time Out put the exhibition in their ‘top 5 art exhibitions’ to see on its opening weekend. And we had a feeling from the start it was going to be great fun.

The exhibition turns the Inigo Rooms at Somerset House into an outpost of a post-apocalyptic world in the wake of a technological meltdown. Inspired by this world controlled by robots, where only basic technology is available to humans, we reproduced images of two of the robots using a DIY screen print effect. The typography had to stay within the guidelines of the Kings College brand, but we apocalypticised the King’s typeface it by turning it into a rubber stamp and force justifying the lines of type to reflect the staccato speaking voices of the robots.

You can meet the robots in their special promotional short film they have released on YouTube.

Welcome to Happy Redoubt is commissioned by King’s Cultural Institute in partnership with UP Projects.

A very sweet way to say thank you

ThankYou

 

A very sweet thank you note from one of our lovely clients, MyCake, whose website we’ve been working on. It came with a giant, head-sized chocolate!

Our brief was to redesign some of the pages so they were clearer to navigate and more friendly and consistent in appearance.  Here’s the new design.

2012FT0666_graphic_gathering

The Victoria and Albert Museum invited us to talk about our work as part of the “Graphic Gathering” event at the V&A, pictured above. Emily and Ruth from REG Design were two of the designers invited to speak, along with designers including Pali Palavathanan from Johnson Banks (shown presenting Johnson Banks work on stage above) and Cecilie Maurud Barstad from Gilles & Cecilie Studio.

The event was for school and college students considering a future in graphic design.  Hopefully we inspired them!
